We stayed in the rooftop terrace room. This is the most unique room in all of the area that we saw. The terrace was amazing, large, and beautiful. Views and a private outdoor relaxing space were priceless. Room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast had anything you could want and had the best warm croissants we had in all of... More

Lovely room, clean and spacious, best location next to the only sandy beach, quiet, peaceful, wonderful hospitality, attentiveness and kindness. Breakfast was good, light and airy room, pine trees outside.

The hotel was in the middle of Santa Margarita Ligure and Portofino . It was 15 mins by walk to Portofino . Since Portofino is too expensive and Santa Margarita Ligure is too crowded it was nice choice to stay in this hotel There is a bus stop in front of the hotel and you can go everywhere by paying...

Was the first thing that Giorgio, the owner, told me about the place. And he was absolutely right. The hotel is nestled in the small bay of Pareggi, surrounded by beautiful almost tropical green. Giorgio and his team make you welcomed the minute you arrive, spoil you with a great and fresh breakfast and a cool mint and iced water... More

This hotel is located on Paraggi Beach which in my opinion, is the best place to stay if visiting Portofino or Santa Margherita. You have the best of both worlds - you are close to Portofino but still have the lovely rock pools which Santa Margherita misses out on. For the younger travellers, it is also close to the nightclub,... More

I can thoroughly recommend Hotel Argentina! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel as if the hotel was 'our home away from home'. The location is awesome, away from the overly touristy Portofino and Santa Margherita with one of the only sandy beaches in the area. Thank you to Georgio (the welcome wines, pizza and meatballs plus... More

Thank you again to Georgio and all the staff at Hotel Argentina! We had a magnificent stay. Breakfast and coffees were brilliant in the mornings and the two housekeepers were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and the location is unbeatable. Great view from the top room. We had many nights there just looking at the view. Rooms are air... More

Probably the most fun I have ever had at a hotel in many years of traveling. Georgio (owner), Maurizo, Bruno and the staff were the BEST. (We miss them already) I used to live in Santa Margherita....and know the area well. Paraggi is paradise....one of the prettiest beaches in the world for sure.....Hotel is located across the street from this... More

It's not 5 star but they don't claim to be, if in the middle of tourist season you become fussy then go away when everyone else doesn't.....I love 5 star but this is a good honest 3. Compared to the price of food and day beds at 50 euro across the road this is great value

Stayed one night here. Greeted warmly by the owner and shown to a small but fully equipped room. We paid a little more for an ensuite. All the things you would expect from larger hotels, toiletries, free wifi... But (in portofino terms) at a reasonable price. Buses convenient for Santa margherita and portofino though the latter is an easy walk.... More
